great teacher, loves what he does, very helpful
I was a student of Mr. Stracco back in 2011.... one thing I really wanted to tell him was how he was so correct in counting the "um's and uh's". When I got to college I was the only student who did not have those words in my public speaking vocabulary. Others received lower grades for saying uh/um. I am grateful that I went to a high school where the information actually related to me later in life.
Had Stracco for both English and Public Speaking. I loved both courses for the content and the way he teaches. Projects and discussions are fun/animated. If you put in the work like you should be doing in any class, you're going to get a good grade. He's not going to put up with b.s. so that's probably why some people give him poor ratings. Projects and discussions are fun/animated. Unfair to say he picks favorites. Unfair to say he plays faves; I worked hard for the grades that "I" received.
I loved Mr. Stracco! He was a great public speaking teacher! I learned so much from him! He really helped me become confident when talking in front of a large audience and gave great lessons on speech writing!
I've never had him as a teacher, but let me tell you this- I've learned more from this guy than I have from teachers I have actually had to learn from. In just a few short months, Mr. Stracco and the drama department at RHS became a family; this guy is LITERALLY like my father. Love him so much. He knows talent, and what looks good on stage. So glad he took over the drama department. He really knows what he's doing. He really cares about his actors and really is such a great guy/director.
Mr. Stracco has taught both of my children. He has inspired both of them to take risks with their writing. He has made them better readers and writers.
Only had him for Public Speaking, but I learned more about writing in that elective than in my English classes. Remember the "sandwich", a gem of a writing tactic!
Best teacher i've ever had and wonderful advisor for our class of 2011 "we are the ones" forever! I've had papa strac's 3x. Frosh english,Junior english,and public speaking.Best schedule ever.
Stracco is one of the bset teachers i have had. He helps us understand what we are learning and always has time to help. I dont care what others say.... You rock !Straccolicious!
There are never surprises in Mr. Stracco's class. His rubrics are clear and concise and tells exactly what he is looking for.
He is real easy teacher i ever had in english.....He is the man!!!
The BEST teacher and great person. And iawl will be the best play in school history
Stracco is the man. There's never been a more helpful, understanding, and nicer teacher ever before in RHS.
He explains the heck out of stuff and makes it so easy to understand...i love it! you people should stop making fun of him
Mr. Stracco is one of the best teachers - Rutherford is lucky to have him.
Probably my favorite teacher.. Likes my writing, and makes things easy..
Mr.stracco is so helpful and hes one of the few teachers who cares.
Mr Stracco grades unfairly and looses students work.
